Evidence of the earth's entire geological history is visible within an 80-mile radius of Vernal. At its center is the new 22,000-square foot Utah Field House Museum, which opened opened in June 2004.

The museum displays a wonderful full size skeleton of a diplodocus and contains other good archaeological and geological displays. Of the latter, a display of ultraviolet rocks is especially striking.
